Thursdays with Tina: Will You Be My Friend?

We spent the morning showing our boss exactly what the clinical definition of "bipolar" is (so much better than a note from our doctor!), so we apologize for this week's installment being a little late. But, here we go: Translating Tina.


Tina-speakWhat it means
[Dean had] been giving New Yorkers a queasy bout of cognitive dissonance. . . I have recently learned some big words.
[C]alm assurance was always their thing, not vein-popping belligerence. . . Belligerence. Beeee-lidge-er-ence. B-E-L-L-I-G-E-R-E-N-C-E (Also: Penis!)
"His very dislikablity is his only likability factor for me," writer Brad Gooch told me.I like to pretend that people still talk to me.
The atmosphere at Upper East Side dinner parties was oddly reminiscent of the height of the Internet boom. . . I like to pretend that I still get invited to parties.
. . . the glimpse of presidential fun-rides to come. . . Let's pretend that the president is a roller-coaster! Wheeeee!
No such sugarplum visions were roused by the rise of Internet Dean.Dean would make a bad roller-coaster.
An investment banker offered this morsel of inside information: "When they took out [Kerry's] prostate gland, they took out his aloof gland, too."My pretend friends sometimes say things even I don't understand. (Also: Penis!)
Excuse me, where does this leave their most recent establishment flavor of the month, Wesley Clark? Nobody wants to talk about that.My pretend friends have deserted me.
Nothing is sexier to donor-groupies than momentum, and there's a locomotive roaring into New Hampshire called Kerry and Edwards.Penis, penis, penis!

Look, it is your afternoon Nice Times at the Supreme Court! It is also your WUT and HUH Times, with Justices Thomas, Sotomayor, Kagan and Gorsuch joining in an opinion by RBG tossing a challenge to Virginia's new, fair districts. Go know!

After the 2010 Census, Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates did what they do best -- they stole more elections, redrawing the electoral map to ensure themselves a supermajority for all eternity. Why let the voters choose their representatives when the representatives can pick their own voters as the founders intended, right? Voters in 12 of the affected districts sued the Virginia State Board of Elections in 2014 to invalidate the districts as illegal racial gerrymanders, and the House of Delegates intervened in Bethune-Hill v. Va. State Bd. of Elections to support the Board and defend its own power.

After extensive litigation including a trip up to the Supreme Court in 2017, the District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia tossed 11 of the districts as illegal racial gerrymanders and ordered the maps redrawn in 2018. At which point, the Commonwealth of Virginia noped out and quit defending the old, craptastic districts, which should have been the end of it.

BUT NO. The Virginia House of Delegates, which is still held by the GOP despite their party netting nine percent fewer votes than Democrats in the 2017 election, vowed to fight on.
